I am kinda surprised they put BSG and LOST on there. Good to see.

Is there a list of them in order from 1-100?

I'd like to see where Lost ranks on that.

Bonanza is probably the worst western TV show ever. They regurgitated the same 10 scripts over and over.

Frasier is missing.

Also, if they've got Monty Python's Flying Circus, they should also have Blackadder and Red Dwarf.

Yeah, it only lasted 14 years and is still on 48 years later.

My pops loved the Westerns. Bonanza was the one he was always watching.

How can Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman make it and NOT La Femme Nikita. Afterall, LFN was the seed that sowed 24.

You're right. Neither one should make it.

24 is pure awsome until it hit season 6. ITs an all time great show that had 1 season that wasnt good.

I wonder which "Star Trek" they mean. Next Generation was far and away the best.

As far as Battlestar Galactica goes, I think it's pretty safe to assume they ain't talking about the old one. :D

And if Roots makes the list, where the hell is Band of Brothers? Or North and South, for that matter.

IM sure he means Original Trek. Yes, its cheesy, but nothing beats the Kirk, Spock, McCoy dynamic and interaction.



As far as Battlestar Galactica goes, I think it's pretty safe to assume they ain't talking about the old one. :D .

Original Battlestar still holds a special place in my heart, but yes, the new one is worlds better.

And if Roots makes the list, where the hell is Band of Brothers? Or North and South, for that matter.

Agreed about BOB, but North and South?? Seriously?

I really liked North and South (the first two, not the utterly pathetic ripoff third one). I actually picked it up on DVD and watched through both of them with the wife, who had never seen them. Granted, there was a certain made-for-TV cheesiness factor, but I really enjoyed watching them again. The wife loved it, too, and it takes a lot for her to get into anything history related.

I thought this was just as goon as Roots, if not better.

Agreed. Night Court should also be there.

I would have liked to see That 70's Show on there. that is some TV my GF and I can both watch. Its entertaining and got good scenery.

Star Trek TNG is the only one worth watching.

La Femme Nakita deservest to be on there.

All those "Epic" 80's miniseries are mostly cheese now. Winds of War, Shogun, Thorn Birds, etc...

Too much soap opery melodrama for me.

I can still watch "V" in all its original cheese though! LOL

Perhaps half of the original Star Trek episodes are still watchable. But I agree, TNG is far and away the best.

Babylon 5 should also be on the list, IMO.

If Firefly hadn't been cancelled prematurely, I'm sure it would have made the list. *shakes his fist at Fox*

That 70's show was ok but it was not one of the best shows ever.

The Beverly Hillbillies and The Andy Griffith Show should be on there.

Especially Andy...

Three's Company?
Charlies Angels?
The Jeffersons?
Gilligan's Island?

Probably, but it is definitely more watchable TO ME than a lot on the list. Its my opinion, not a suggestion of the people's choice. Sorry, should have clarified myself.
